August 4th 2016 – Lontar Exhibition
In August 2016, Hatten Wines unveiled a commissioned Lontar piece which finds its home in the Hatten Wines Private Dining Room by Gaggenau. This commissioned Lontar tells the story of humanity’s connection to the Divine, completing the illustration of the Tri Hita Karana principles in the venue. Along with the concepts of integration of nature and creating a communal social environment, the Lontar’s exquisitely etched text depicts a story of how humans cultivate their relationship with their creator.
Etched by Bapak Ida Bagus Nyoman Buruan, from Desa Sidemen, Karangasem. The Lontar is single sided and encased in a présentoir to be displayed in the Private Dining Room of the Hatten Wines Building. Normally written with sacred text and preserved in family scripts, these exquisite pieces of art are rarely seen in public. Containing legends, recipes, directives as to crops and subak, the lontars of Bali keep many secrets and historical data.
The lontar exhibition of August 2016 showed 30 pieces of history depicting everyday life, stories and even a land deep of 1887, displaying its Dutch Colonial stamp.

Hatten Wines Bali Cricket league – since 2012
Over the last 5 years, the sponsorship of Hatten Wines for the Bali Cricket League, has seen the number of teams increase from 7 men’s teams in 2012 to 12 men’s teams and 6 women’s teams that have played in the Hatten Wines Bali Cricket League in the last two years. This has meant that over the five years the total number of players participating has increased from approximately 100 to close to 300 today. This 300% increase in those playing cricket in Bali would not have been possible without the support of Hatten Wines. A majority of players on the Indonesian National Team and Women’s National Team, are from Bali.
Also, mainly because of what we have managed to achieve here in Bali, the Indonesian Government and the local Balinese Government are now recognizing the game of cricket throughout the country and are providing more funding to keep the momentum going. This is excellent news for the continued expansion of cricket in Indonesia.
